I thought this was really cool. jam6i, I am surprised you did not post this one .....


It is obvious that they were going to use Adam Shepherd somewhere in the game it is seems like it got scrapped.

No one seems super interested in the glitchy stuff I do for Homecoming so I just didn't bother to post it, even though it's a very interesting find.

The fact that he is fully animated and has HP and can be killed does seem to imply they planned on doing more with him. Maybe a tag-along section like with Wheeler or an escort scenario like with Elle.

I like to think they scrapped this idea, but still used that asset as a "mirage" behind the tarp. It is very much true that Adam is totally in the basement of the house and you can totally murder him if you wish. There is no mirage. Just Adam trolling you.

It's pretty funny to see him either fall on top or below the water when you hit him ....

After you kill him the game does absolutely nothing after he dies and disappears ?

BTW, I thought the axe to the back of the head and shotgun blast was funny too.

Oh yeah, I read about this before.
Early in development, Adam was considered a likely candidate as a playable character for lost episodes of the game, in which the player would explore what happened before Alex's arrival in Shepherd's Glen.

Thanks for sharing, this is really interesting... And pretty funny. "Mom, you just stay here while I murder Dad." :lol:

Same, if you ask me it's a shame that this idea was scrapped. I always thought Adam was much more of an interesting character than Alex since having to choose between sacrificing your own child and screwing over the community you're responsible for is pretty tragic if you think about it. Too bad they used him only as a generic asshole dad.

Yeah, i think if they would have had you playing as him when the game first starts and crafting a story where it implements you being a bit more sympathetic or compassionate to his situation, but at the same time have the situation seem a bit cryptic or mysterious in nature, then i think we would have felt a bit more for him as a character in the game.

Showing a bit of a backstory and showing how he struggled with the decisions he had to make would have fleshed him out more as a character. I didn't feel anything for him even after his revelation in Homecoming.

Ya, there was really no way you could feel for him as the character development was lacking I am afraid.

Yesterday I started to play this game again to refresh my memory and I'm looking for interesting things to try and see, things that maybe I overlooked at the time. Anyway .. interesting video, I'll try it. I'm with the PC version, I hope it works too.

EDIT: I can not make it work.
